How to Apply
HIRSP Plans are for individuals who have recently been insured, while the HIRSP Federal Plans are for individuals who have not been insured for at least six months.
On Wednesday, May 15, 2013 the Wisconsin Legislature’s Joint Committee on Finance voted to include language in its proposed state budget that sunsets the Health Insurance Risk-Sharing Plan. The state budget must now pass the Wisconsin Assembly and Senate and be signed by Governor Walker. The language approved by the Joint Committee on Finance establishes the last day of coverage for HIRSP and HIRSP Federal Plan members as December 31, 2013 unless the federal healthcare marketplace in Wisconsin is not accepting applications at that time. The federal healthcare marketplace (formerly known as the healthcare exchange) is the key feature of national healthcare reform. The marketplace is expected to begin accepting applications on October 1, 2013 for private, guaranteed coverage effective January 1, 2014. HIRSP will be providing detailed information to HIRSP and HIRSP Federal Plan members in the near future. To stay informed, please register on the HIRSP website at http://hirsp.org/about/hcr-email-signup.php to receive important email updates regarding your HIRSP or HIRSP Federal Plan coverage. HIRSP and HIRSP Federal Plan coverage will remain in effect until December 31, 2013.
